The Meaning of Christmas Day

The Meaning of Christmas Day

It rained hard the night before Christmas

But I had to buy a gift or two

Yet for some unspoken reason

I turned left on the avenue.

 

My van moved slow through pouring rain

when I saw someone falling down

She held a bundled baby and

Her husband helped her off the ground

 

I pulled off to the side and yelled out

“Do you need a ride?”

Not sure if they spoke English

But they quickly jumped inside.

 

When I asked them “Where ya headed to?”

the man he said “Jose”

Called his wife Maria

And said that Sixth Street would be okay.

 

Well, they smelled a bit like humility

Maria and Jose

They’d named their baby Jesus

Cuz he was born on the holiday

So hush a bye and don’t you cry

Cuz everything’s okay

Soon I’ll be opening presents

cuz that’s the meaning of Christmas Day

 

 

When we got to the destination

I found everything pitch dark

“We stay in a back garage ” he said

So I put my van in park.

 

“Gracias for the ride amigo,

Tu eres amable”

Then Maria bundled up their babe

And I watched them step away

 

Well, they smelled a bit like humility

Maria and Jose

They’d named their baby Jesus

Cuz he was born on the holiday

So hush a bye and don’t you cry

Cuz everything’s okay

Soon I’ll be home with my family

That’s the meaning of Christmas Day

 

 

The next day I drove to Sixth street

Out of pure curiosity

The day was warm and sunny

So I parked beside a tree

 

That’s when I discovered to my surprise

There was no garage at back.

Just a vacant lot with a chain-link fence

And I wondered where they’d went

 

If there’s a message to this song it’s

treat everyone the same – try to

Do something nice for others that could

Be you walking in the rain

 

Well they smelled a bit like humility

Maria and Jose

They’d named their baby Jesus

Cuz he was born on the holiday

So hush a bye and don’t you cry

Cuz everything’s okay

Today I’ll celebrate my savior’s birth

that’s the meaning of Christmas Day

Yeah, the meaning of Christmas Day

Xmas Baby Lyrics:

Back then, when my mom was alive, yeah, at Christmas time, One thing we would do that would never fail is take a trip downtown to hear the Christmas carols…coming out of the County Jail.

And sometimes, maybe just sometimes,(well maybe just for me) I’d hear “Happy birthday” from my real daddy.

Cuz I’m a Christmas baby  Born on Christmas day,covershadowed by the holidaycBut if you come here then maybe,you’ll sing happy birthday to me!

Cuz I’m a Christmas baby, Born on Christmas day, overshadowed by the holiday, But if you come here then maybe, you’ll sing happy birthday to me!

My morning is shot by NFL on TV, And nobody but debt collectors are calling me. So I walk to the park — see a man dressed like Santa. Drunk as a skunk while every church is singing hosannas. And everybody else gets a cake (for their birthday) But not for me, there’s no special day to celebrate.

Cuz I’m a Christmas baby/Born on Christmas day,overshadowed by the holiday/ But if you come here then maybe, maybe/you’ll sing happy birthday to me..

Cuz I’m a Christmas baby, born on Christmas day, overshadowed by the holiday/ But if you come here then maybe,you’ll sing happy birthday to me..

As the late morning hour gently sighs, teardrops fall straight down from the sky. A kid runs past in some dirty sweats. Followed by a car, the driver’s face dead set. So I jog six blocks to my apartment. The landlord lookin’ at me like he want the rent. Yank open the door and what a surprise!

Damn raindrop musta caught me in the eye. Cuz my friends all a hollerin, and giving me hugs. And everyone that’s there — starts to showing me love.My Girlie lays on me a deep French kiss and I’m in shock, man, I didn’t expect this!

Cuz I’m a Christmas baby, Born on Christmas day,overshadowed by the holiday. But if you come here then maybe you’ll sing happy birthday to me..

Cuz I’m a Christmas baby, born on Christmas day, overshadowed by the holidayBut if you come here then maybe you’ll sing happy birthday to me

Peace out.

Not Yet Christmas

Not Yet Xmas
Robert Boog

You can listen to the song here, love it and buy it!
maybe it’s the chilly weather
Seeing folks … together.
Last minute gifts, disappointments
Nuff food to feed a small city.
Santas , Dads, Moms with Kids
Jesus ,Mary and Joseph.
Three wise men… bringing gifts…
people-watching excitement.
They’re telling me I gotta be strong
You’ll get over it, it’s time to move on.
maybe I thought I was through but
Here’s the holidays without you, and
Baby, I’m still missing you,
I know there’s nothing I can do
And maybe I ain’t over it, yeah,
Baby, I’m not over it, yet. Not yet. Not yet. Not yet. Not yet.
Snow came late again this year
Draped the yard in white and it’s weird
Heard a song by Ziggy Stardust
With Bing Crosby –your favorite
remember that time in Hawaii? kept
Saying Mele Kalikimaki
Then we went to the Christmas party
And we missed a plane to Maui.
They’re telling me I gotta be strong
You’ll get over it, it’s time to move on.
maybe I thought I was through but
Here’s the holidays without you and
Baby, I’m still missing you,
I know there’s nothing I can do
And maybe I ain’t over it, yeah.
Baby, I’m not over it, yet. Not yet. Not yet. Not yet.
BRIDGE: [ I miss your lousy parking
I miss your stupid joking
And I wish I could bring you back cuz
I think I’m kinda jealous]
They’re telling me I gotta be strong
You’ll get over it,it’s time to move on.
maybe I thought I was through but
Here’s the holidays without you and
Baby, I’m still missing you,
I know there’s, nothing I can do
And maybe I ain’t over it,
Baby, I’m not over it, Yet.
Not yet. Not yet. Not yet.Not yet.

(brilliantly sung by Danielle)
